Empty and Unfurnished Discount Changes 

The Council Tax collected by SHBC from just over 37,000 domestic properties is used to help fund vital local services provided by SHBC, Surrey County Council (SCC), Surrey Police and Parish Councils.
 
Some of the important services provided by SHBC are delivered by Community Services, including Meals at Home, Community Transport, the Windle Valley Centre and Social Prescribing. These services are discretionary, which means they are optional for the local authority to deliver.
 
The Council knows these services are vital to our vulnerable residents, and to help fund them, SCC has agreed that the money raised from any domestic property remaining empty and unfurnished for up to 28 days can be retained by SHBC. The sum is estimated to be in excess of £185,000 per year.
 
From 1 April 2020 the current 100% local discount in respect of property left empty and unfurnished for up to 28 days was reduced to 0%.
 

Council Tax - Free Text Message Reminder Service

Council Tax pays for vital local services provided by SHBC, Surrey County Council, Surrey Police and the Parish Councils.
 
To ensure we collect this tax we issue reminders by post very promptly if the correct payment is not made on the due date.
 
From April 2020 Council Tax payers can choose to have a free reminder sent by text message prior to any recovery letters being issued.
 
This will not only give you a convenient, timely reminder, but will save on paper and postage costs for the Council, and be more environmentally friendly.
 
If you would like to sign up to this service, please email revenues@surreyheath.gov.uk with your mobile number and your Council Tax account number (which can be found on the bill dated 10 March 2020) and we will do the rest.
 

Surrey County Council Adult Social Care Precept

Surrey County Council Adult Social Care precept is part of the overall charge that is set to pay for the services delivered by the County Council.
 
This precept is levied by Surrey County Council and the money raised is ring fenced to pay for Adult Social Care. The percentage increase of this precept is based on the overall Council Tax charge set by Surrey County Council but expressed against the Adult Social Care individual sum.
 
2020/21 Valuation Band D charge was £1511.46 of which £131.46 was in respect of Adult Social Care.
 
2021/22 Valuation Band D charge is £1549.08 of which £139.01 is in respect of Adult Social Care. Overall the charge has increased by 2.49% or £37.62 of which 0.5% or £7.55 is used to fund Adult Social Care. Therefore the Adult Social Care Valuation Band D charge rises from £131.46 in 2020/21 to 2021/22 £139.01
 
This table shows the 2018/19 charge and confirms the 2% increase for 2020/21:

What does the Council Tax pay for?

For every pound collected, 74p will go to Surrey County Council to pay for services such as social services, schools and libraries, and 13p will go to Surrey Police Authority.

Around 12p will stay with the Borough Council to pay for services provided locally such as collecting rubbish and sweeping the streets, services for the elderly, caring for the environment, health and safety, planning, parks, open spaces and leisure centres. 1p will go to parish councils.

What are Special Expenses?

Special expenses are used as a mechanism to charge elements of the Council Tax to specific areas of the borough.

Surrey Heath Borough Council recovers an element of its Council Tax via Special Expenses. These charges are applicable in Camberley, Frimley, Frimley Green, Deepcut and Mytchett.

Special expenses are charged to ensure that non parished areas, which are Camberley, Frimley, Frimley Green, Mytchett and Deepcut, are charged a proportion of the cost of facilities such as open spaces directly which in parished areas are charged in a parish precept

In the interests of fairness and balance Surrey Heath Borough Council charges special expenses in Camberley, Frimley, Frimley Green, Deepcut and Mytchett to recover the costs of maintaining the assets it owns.

The figure quoted on individual bills for properties in the Camberley, Frimley, Frimley Green, Deepcut and Mytchett is dependant upon the overall level of “special expenses” recoverable each year.
